Since his third place finish at the Augusta National in the Masters on April 9th, Tiger Woods has not played. Since the passing of Tigers father Earl Woods, things have been more of a reality check for the PGA's Megastar. Tiger Woods does, however, intend on playing at the US Open between the 15th-18th of June.
Tuesday Tiger Woods was just outside Little Rock, at the Alotian Club where he made his first appearance that was related to golf. Woods was giving to his younger fan base, as there was a clinic for the Inaugural Jackson T. Stephens Charitable Golf Tournament. Children from the Stephens supported charities watched and listened to this golf, great as he offered advice to young golfers on the mechanics of swings.
Tiger did play a round of golf in N. Y. at the famous Winged Foot Course located in Mamaroneck, N. Y. , which is a very good indication that he intends on attending the late June event. Tiger definitely feels that his game needs work, and this is as good a place as any to start the process, of rebuilding his confidence.
Tiger knows as well as anyone, you must drive well at the US OPEN, there is no margin for error, and the roster of contestants is tough. Taking time off for the mourning of his father on the third of May 2006, gave Tiger Woods some rust, he knows it and plans on fixing it. Not only does he need work on his driving, his irons are in need of a serious distance check as well. All part of his master plan, we can be sure of this. Look forward to seeing Tiger on the course, and making the crowd happy.
